BEV Vol 2 due any minute!

Recommended Posts

Straight from the website! BEV Vol.2 is now in the hands of Flight1 due any minute.----------------------------------------------------------------------112005 - 18:20PST Both VOL1 v1.02 Summer and VOL2 v1.00 are now in the hands of Flight1 and will be available shortly. You can access Flight1 from clicking on their banner on our home page. We will also be providing FlightSim with the installers, however I don't believe that they will be accessible until ThanksGiving weekend.. if that changes we'll post it here. If you have a previous version of VOL1, please down load the newest version and follow the instructions and you'll be up to date. Enjoy! - Stephen----------------------------------------------------------------------Get the cards out! Should be here pretty soon! :9 Too bad that im currently in SEA-IAH on vatsim. :(Edit: I think i got too excited. I think they state we wont get them untill next weekend... :-hmm

>Do we have to pay for summer version 1.02 if we are existing>1.01 customers?>>Thanks,>JeffOf course not! :)Just DL it and have your Flight1 "key" handy that you got when you originally purchashed it. There should be an option to choose "re-install" instead of "purchase" when you run the install exe :)It is recomended that you upgrade your VOL 1 before you install Vol 2Joe D

Good news, im downloading the summer textures now, but with only 1/10 the normal speed. I can see the fall textures are not up yet so the servers are not taking a hit at this moment, so its my crappy line again not worth the money i pay for it :D.OHN

The new Configuator II will look and feel very similar to the first version. Version II does not use .NET. It also adds the ability to click on any Bev texture and get a larger preview of that texture, making it easier to see the differences between the choices. It also saves Themes as a separate file, allowing users to exchange themes with each other. There are some behind the scenes tweaks that will allow future Bev volumes to get integrated with each other easier.TonyBEVBetaSig.jpg

Many of the textures in Vol I have been tweaked since the initial release. There are an increased number of choices within the Configuator for some textures as well. An example of this is some of the wet urban textures. Some landclass sources out there would put denser urban textures in the suburbs and lighter density textures in the urban center. Now you can flip-flop this effect with the configuator if you so choose.There should be equivalent sized textures to all FS defaults for all BEV textures with both the updated Vol I and the new Vol II. This includes autogen as well as runway textures. Some of these were larger than the FS defaults in the first release.The ability to choose separate sources for Inland as well as Ocean water has been added. Now, you could choose Bev inland water for instance, and use another source for oceans such as Flight Environment if you wish.Some new textures have been added for Ultimate Terrain users. You can now select separate BEV textures for parks and even a specific texture for Cemeteries is you wish.So as you can see, lots of goodies and enhancements even for our existing customers.Tony=http://www.flightsim-bevs.com]BEVBetaSig.jpg

Give the water a try. You can always go back to what you are using now if you prefer by selecting the "Pre-Bev" option in the configuator. I really like it, but I might be a bit biased. ;)Tony=http://www.flightsim-bevs.com]BEVBetaSig.jpg

>I can't seem to find KoorbyGen among Autogen choices.>>Thanks,>JeffNo, since KorbyGen is now released as freeware, it is no longer included with BEV. It is stiil avalible at various sites and you can still install it manually if you wish.However "GenReloaded" has been greatly improved and even includes new night lighting so, you might want to give that a try. :)JOE D
